The special features of the Ergobaby Omni 360 stretcher
The Ergobaby Carrier Omni 360 is a fullbuckle stretcher, which means that it is closed with buckles and therefore regulated in size or width. The concept here is quite similar to the original Ergobaby, which has long been a name on the market. With the Ergobaby Omni 360, however, the child can not only be carried face-to-face with the wearer, but also in an ergonomic position. In contrast to the stretcher 360, the width for the leg opening can be adjusted very quickly with sliders. At the 360 you have to button.
Carrying forward is possible with the Omni 360
Babies muscles are not strong enough yet and the hunchback is best guaranteed in the front wear way to the wearer. In addition, children can not escape the stimuli that flow from the front. The wearer does not notice the excessive demand. Usually this is reflected in the evening screaming. For older children, however, the extended view could be fun.
Another difference to the Ergobaby Original is that the Omni 360 can be used from birth. A newborn use is not required here. It is also possible to choose between several colors and designs, but also between two materials – Premium Cotton or Cool Air Mesh.
Advantages and disadvantages
The comfort is high. This is ensured by the extra-wide, padded hip belt and the thick, padded shoulder straps. The straps are also ergonomically shaped and therefore extremely comfortable. Depending on your wishes and preferences, however, the wearer may also be cross-over, which some people find more pleasant. In the parallel variant, the carriers can be fixed together with a central web so that they do not slip off the shoulder. In addition, they can be adjusted in length with the help of a buckle easily the carrier individually.
The hip belt is variable in terms of width and fits easily even a little fuller people. He also has an integrated lumbar support, which minimizes the risk of back pain.
Maximum comfort thanks to wide padded shoulder straps and hipbelt
As for the material: The pure cotton fabric feels extremely soft. However, conventional cotton was used here, not organic cotton. But it is also possible to buy the Omni 360 in the cool air mesh version, which is particularly breathable and lightweight.
SPF 50+ protects your little one reliably
The baby carrier Ergobaby Omni 360 does not need a newborn insert. It can be used from day one to infancy. The weight is given as 3.2 to 20 kilograms. As the bridge grows with you, it guarantees an ergomically correct posture from the beginning. The baby always sits in the important squat-spread position. The bridge width can be infinitely adjusted with a Velcro fastener. The color-coded areas in the hook-and-loop fastener, which are located on the inside of the hip belt, are helpful here.
The carrying bag in which the baby is, is easily shaped and flexibly adjustable. It consists of three parts: the back part and the two padded side flanks. These give the baby carrier a slightly different look. The most important thing: Because of exactly these two side flanks, the baby can also be worn with the face forward, if necessary. For many parents this is an important aspect. The leg opening in the carrying bag can be infinitely adjusted to your child to ensure the correct posture.
Even the backpack sack grows with it: as the child grows taller, it fans out and widen to allow more space for the child.
One downside is that the hipbelt is not fully padded, just like the Ergobaby Carrier Original. So if you have a larger hip size, you must expect that not the whole hip area is soft around.
Carrying technology with a view to the front is generally not recommended by providers. In the Omni 360 stretcher, this variant is possible up to a weight of 13.6 kilos. Whether the child is doing an optimal M-position ergonomic, however, is questionable. The manufacturer states that your child should not be carried forward for more than 20 minutes to avoid false loading and over-stimulation.

Ergobaby instructions: The donning of the baby carrier Ergobaby
The Ergobaby carrying instructions are included in the baby carrier Omni 360. She is well illustrated and easy to understand. First, the hipbelt is adjusted in the width and then strapped. To prevent accidental opening, you should pull the buckle through the extra safety tab.
Then the baby is placed on the bridge, which you have to adjust in width so that the material reaches from the back of the knee to the back of the knee. Next, pull the back over the child’s back and place the straps over the shoulders. In order to prevent slipping of the carrier, now the center bar between the shoulder straps must be closed. Alternatively, you can cross the straps on your back.
For the carrying position on the back, it is advisable to donate in pairs. With a little practice, but also this carrying position can easily accomplish alone. For the hip carrier, the shoulder straps, as explained in the Ergobaby manual, must be fixed differently.
Functions and days of the Ergobaby carrier Omni 360
The child can be carried in four wearing positions: on the back, on the stomach, on the stomach, looking forward and on both hips. This makes the Ergobaby Omni 360 stand out clearly from most other comfort days. There are thus all carrying positions possible.
In the first few months, however, the baby should only be carried in front of the abdomen and in the direction of the wearer.
Ergobaby Omni 360: Cool Air Mesh or Premium Cotton
Just like the Ergobaby Adapt and 360, the Ergobaby Omni 360 stretcher comes in two variants. Once in the cool air mesh version, which is very appealing on hot days, especially on hot days. However, it is 100% polyester. The other variant is made of pure cotton, called Ergobaby Premium Cotton.
Both models are largely identical and therefore have exactly the same advantages. Only the mesh variant is slightly lighter and more airy due to the net-like material. So for summer kids maybe the better choice.
If you wear your baby a lot, you can of course also buy the summer version in addition to the Cotton version especially for the hot days. In terms of price, there is little difference between the two variants.
Cool Air Mesh is machine washable at 30 ° C and has a dead weight of about 700 g. Premium Cotton weighs 750 g and is also easy to clean at 30 ° C.

Differences to Ergobaby 360 and Adapt
With the Ergobaby Adapt the view to the front is not possible. The Omni 360 combines the advantages of the Adapt and 360 models. The upholstery and construction are similar. A particular improvement is the individually adjustable web width. The Original Ergobaby and the Model 360 require a newborn insert, which is completely eliminated in the Omni 360. The Adapt also needs no use, but offers only three wearing variants.
The cut is also slightly different than the Adapt and 360. This means that the back part is slightly longer and therefore just larger babies find in it a bit more space. By continuously adjustable slider on the back, it can be widened. When wearing with a view to the front, so the opening for the legs can be ergonomically adjusted. With the Ergobaby 360, changing is only possible with buttons in two positions, which is sometimes a bit fiddly.
